The older I get, the more simple I like my wrist watches. I am at the point where having the date function and a second hand on a watch is over kill for me. I am a huge fan of symmetry.
There are always exceptions to the rule. Breguet invented the first wrist watch in 1803. The Bregeut Classique in 18kwg is my favorite three handed watch in the market today.
From the refined 38mm 18kwg case with coin edge, to the white enamel oven baked dial with secret engraving that can only be seen at certain angles with a loop, to the painted black Breguet style Arabic Numeral hour markers & dot minute marker, with the iconic pomme steel blued “Breguet” style hands, and the unique proprietary date window located at the 3 o’clock position., and the Breguet Caliber 777q, which contains 35 jewels with an approximate Power Reserve of 55 hours.
This watch has the history, sophistication, and timeless design that make this the true textbook definition of a wristwatch that completely transcends time.
Even though this is a mans watch in the traditional sense , it has the versatility to be worn by that elegant women looking to wear something bigger, bolder and more refined, with an everyday wearing sensibility.
I highly recommend this watch to anyone looking to purchase something clean, understated, incredibly well finished with subtle details and is a symbol of class and distinction that can only be recognized by the true watch aficionado.
